MAC - Mobile Artificial Consciousness. Any self-motivating machine intelligence designed to operate a body allowing it mobility.

Robo - Shorthand for RObot BOdy. Humans and MACs alike can pilot Robos.

This game is for all the fans of giant robot cartoons and live action shows who want to roleplay those kind of characters, but have found other systems too wargame-like. RoboMACs tries to have more of a dramatic, cinematic flavor to it, replacing hard numbers with general traits and 'hooks.' The rules are tilted toward combat between humanoid or animalform Robos, better capturing the feel of the genre. Vehicle combat rules are presented, including detailed rules for creation of totally nonhumanoid "Robos" (such as starships, bases and non-transforming aircraft.)

Character creation is useable for any kind of giant robot game from grim and gritty to implausibly silly; allowing for as many different campaigns as there are gamers.

In the world of the Exodus, explorers returns from the stars to free a humanity from the yoke of soulless computer intelligences...or throwbacks to a warlike era attempt to destroy the Utopia that Earth has become! Could it be both? Whatever the truth is, machines of war and alien technology threaten to destroy the prize both sides fight over!

Exodus is designed to have a wide variety of characters. Piloted Robos and RoboMACs, normal humans and superhumans (and aliens) all inhabit this universe. 154 Pages.

I'm going to start off being open and mention that I consider the main author a friend of mine. I've got a bit of a personal bias here, but I'll try to be fair. Suffice to say, I know that Robo Macs is very much a labor of love. It's great for f [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
